This summer I went out and bought a badminton set for our backyard. Megan decided to set it up today. She & I battled it out in the summer heat, mid afternoon. By the time we finished, we were pretty sweaty and needed a cold lemonade to help cool us off. Megan had never played before and thought it wasn’t going to be that tough. After a few “whiffs” with her racquet,she found out that it’s a lot harder than she thought. But we were laughing so much, that it became hard for both of us to keep our eye on the birdie.
Later, she called her friend Charli and the two of them were just as fun to watch as it was to play. Between playing badminton and jarts this summer, it’s really brought back memories of my own backyard as a kid and how much fun these games are. They have definitely stood the test of time.
